Mike Lynch (sportscaster)

Mike Lynch is the sports director and anchor for WCVB-TV Channel 5 in Boston, Massachusetts. He is seen on the air at 6 and 11 PM from Sunday to Thursday, or when a significant sports event is happening. He has been at WCVB since 1982. Lynch became the principal Sports Anchor in 1985.[1]

He was the preseason sideline reporter for the New England Patriots. In 2012 the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association named Lynch Massachusetts Sportscaster of the Year. This was the sixteenth time Lynch received this award, more than any other sportscaster in the history of the award.[2][3]
